Things to Do in Mahabaleshwar

  • Mahabaleshwar Temple

    "Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Mahabaleshwar Temple is one of the most frequented pilgrimage sites for Hindus. A fine example of Hemadant architectural style, the temple was constructed in the 16th century under the aegis of Chanda Rao More dynasty. The shrine features Lord Shiva’s trishul, damru, rudraksha and bed which are about 300 years old. Encircled by a 5 feet high stone wall, the beautiful Mahabaleshwar Temple is divided into two sanctums – the inner God's chamber and the outer central hall. The lingam is believed to have appeared here on its own, around 500 years old.

    The other important attraction of the temple is a square shaped raised platform. As per folklore, it is the place where Shivaji, the Maratha ruler, weighed his mother Jijabai in gold and gave away the gold in charity. On account of its religious and calm environs, many pilgrims visit this revered shrine for spiritual solace.
